The opener of the Tour de Pologne is a race from Chorzów to Katowice. A bunch sprint is the most likely outcome.
A fast finishers showdown is again on the cards at the end of stage 2. The sprinters should take note of the slightly uphill finish line.
At 203.1 kilometres, stage 3 is the longest race of this Tour de Pologne. The route takes in seven intermediate climbs before the finale is played out on a rolling finishing circuit.
The 4th stage has written climbers and punchers all over it. The race in the High Tatra Mountains comprises three identical laps with a number of Ścianę’s, which is the Polish word for Walls. The finish climb is a fine example of the hardships ahead: 1.5 kilometres at 11%.
The final stage of the Tour de Pologne is, again, tailor-made for fast finishers.
Pavel Sivakov is title holder. He won the 2019 edition ahead of Jai Hindley and Diego Ulissi.
